The Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) has recognized 34 of its members for their contributions to both the practical and theoretical aspects of computing and information technology. The new ACM Fellows, from some of the world’s leading industries, research labs, and universities made significant advances that are having lasting effects on the lives of citizens throughout the world.
